Making the Rounds with Dr. Hurt

August 25, 2016

What can I do for your happiness?

I was asked that question by Steven Tyler last Saturday (yes, THAT Steven Tyler). I thought about it for a second and replied, "Nothing, I'm happy! Thanks." 

Shelly and I were fortunate enough to go backstage with the former Aerosmith front man last Saturday at the Iowa State Fair. He was very gracious, has two cute little Yorkies named Butch and Sundance, looks great, and gave a fantastic performance. His question to me had significance because I had just decided a few days earlier I am done with this grieving crap! No one needs to give me permission to do that. Yes, I know I will always miss Jack, but it's time for me to celebrate his life. And mine! I have so many blessings. Thank you to all of you around here who helped me through! I will always be grateful and never forget! I would like to share a few quotes on happiness:

Happiness is an inside job. - Wally "Famous" Amos

Happiness depends on ourselves. - Aristotle

A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes. - Hugh Downs


One reason I'm happy is that college football season is here!
